So,how did we go from an M1911 question to an anti union tirade?

I wouldn't say an anti-union tirade but the idea is that shooters, as mentioned, can buy a nice 1911 gun from manufacturers outside the US in non-union shops. Post #17 mentions:
"there are so many other companies making them because Colt priced them out of reach of the working man. the design is favored by a lot of people both professional and layman, but not everyone can afford the $1,000 price tag on a Colt. If Colt made them for ~$500 for a basic they'd put other companies on the sideline, because who'd buy a Taurus or RIA 1911 when you could have a Colt for the same price".
Colt makes guns in Hartford Conn in a union shop (UAW hop) and that contributes to the product cost out the door. The other guys have the advantage of inexpensive non-union labor.
